Aussie defence businesses excel at getting job done: Raytheon

Australian defence sector players tend to cut through red tape and “get the job done”, according to Raytheon director of emerging markets Mark Noyes.

Drawing on his long record of military-centric business in a US-Australia context, Noyes said Australian decision makers in the defence industry typically tend to get through the bureaucracy and get the job done.

"That is [also] the success of our warfighters and getting the mission done,” Noyes said. “I think we have a long history … of the Australian people supporting the United States in a number of contingencies and conflicts starting back in World War I.

"I think that partnership has really strengthened over the years and that there is a lot more to do together, and we really look forward to doing more with Australia."

Meanwhile, the firm’s business development executive Jason Nelson – whose remit centers primarily on electronic warfare systems – said his involvement with the development of relationships with both Australian government and industry had been a positive one.

"It has been a very good experience," said Nelson, referring to the pivotal moment when the ADF received the E/A-18G Growlers. "We've been able to work very closely with Raytheon Australia here ... we've been able to tap into their understanding of the market and the requirements, very specifically, and then also leverage in the capability that we bring from the US side and working with the US military."
